Stupid Question

What is the deal with the Rep power number? What does it mean and how and when does it increase?

the more bad ass you are, the higher your rep power. I’m half-kidding. No, people can rate your posts and decide whether they agree with you or disagree (a good reason to avoid confrontation itself) with you, and give you points for your posts. There has been an increase in rep power points (my rep power has quadrupled in the past week) so i don’t know what’s going on. I had heard once you get a rep power of 10 you’ll get some free stuff but I don’t know how true that is.

ok, thanks for the info
